You need to know that I am a major fan of Sherrie Mathieson. I wore out her last book. I have been to a number of her lectures and enjoyed every moment. I even had the good fortune to once have her in my very own closet, separating the good from the not-so-good from the outright awful.

My expectations were high when I learned she had a new book coming out and I was not disappointed. The models are real women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. They look like people you and I know and love. Good people with family to care for and lives to lead. And they look fabulous. Every one of them.

Sherrie not only styles the women but offers comments on important details to note and how those same principles can be applied as you plan your own wardrobe. The photos are so beautiful you'll be tempted to just browse through but please, don't stop there! Take the time to read the text and you'll come out with a whole new level of understanding.

Yes, Sherrie Mathieson is brilliant. Don't overlook this book. And while you're at it, buy her last one as well. You won't be sorry!

I love Sherrie's style advice, and was counting the days for her new book to be released. I wasn't disappointed. If you're a boomer who wants to stay (or become) simply cool, chic, and sophisticated--buy this book...and you don't need to have a daughter to love it-I don't!

Sherrie uses real women with "never cool" outfits you'll see in your own office or on the street. The "forever cool" changes are dramatic. Want to see a 63 year-old woman lose 20 years with a change of clothing? Check out pages 49 and 147. I'm not kidding.

Sherrie has a unique voice in a world of style opinions, and I love listening to her. Instead of being confused over the latest trends, read this book and learn about timeless style that is really (forever) cool.

I have bought several fashion books and have generally been underwhelmed. Most have the same, old suggestions (buy quality, clean out your closet, dress your figure...)and/or focus on quite boring corporate looks. This book focused on modernizing your look if you are 40+ and if anything hit a bit too close to home for someone who thought they generally looked pretty good (my first clue was when my 35ish year old cousin turned down my offer of very gently used clothes as being "so 90's...!). I don't think there is a woman over 40 that can relate to some of the "uncool" photos of real women and be appreciative of how to be "cooler" and that DOESN"T mean trying to look young. Its really about MODERNIZING your look. The use of real life women in real clothes was immensely helpful as each look could honestly be recreated at many budget levels. I also appreciated the inclusion of specific designers/manufacturers to look for which were within the price range of women, such as myself, that want to look good and buy quality but aren't going to spend hundreds of dollars on a skirt or pair of shoes.(I have more to do with my disposable income than spend it all on clothes!). I also liked the fact that a variety of women, both ethnically and figure types (as well as a range of 40+ ages) were featured. Also different fashion styles (ethnic/bohemian, sporty, classic, etc.). Alot of books for older women essentially insist that we all wear business suits during the week and twin sets and slacks during the weekends - nice to see some appropriate looks for those of us with more casual and/or creative lifestyles. I highly recommend this book and will be sharing it with friends.

I've noticed that most of the other reviewers are familiar with the author's other work; as someone who is NOT, I have to say, this book does not stand alone. I agree with the reviewer who said that there could have been so much more done with these before-and-after shots, getting into the nitty-gritty of why some things work and others don't. Instead, we are left to draw our own conclusions. All the text really has to offer are jokey put-downs of the bad outfits and snappy (corny) pump-ups of the good ones.

Also, the premise-- that mothers learn some hip tricks from their daughters and daughters learn some classic styling from their moms-- never actually happens. Mothers and daughters alike appear to have been styled by the author, with no attention to their actual tastes. Rather than an interesting mother-daughter exchange, we get coordinating outfits and cheesy commentary, mildly entertaining to page through but nothing I'd want to pay for. We are supposed to care about these women because we are given pages and pages of their headshots, ages, and professions at the beginning of the book, but then we are given nothing about their personalities, styles, or foibles, and I stop even caring to look back and see how old they are or what line of work they're in. It doesn't matter. They look good in a perfectly tailored pair of black trousers. Most people do. The author is a good stylist. But I think that with this book, she might be resting on her laurels. It's a waste.

Sherrie has done it again, and this time, in her second book, shows women "of a certain age" how to translate youthful looks in an appropriate way, so we look terrific without looking like we are trying too hard. Straight forward but lovely photos show clearly what works and what doesn't - and the streamlined but pointed (and amusing) text explains why an item or outfit works (and why others definitely do not work). Fun to read, but oh so information, STEAL THIS STYLE should be in every woman's walk-in closet. Don't get dressed without it!
